Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2011 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #5

  • 50,000 miles


On several occasions, while my daughter was driving at normal speed of traffic on the highway, as well as on streets, the car simply shuts off. This occurs regardless of the level of fuel, even when it is full. The car has been serviced and maintained per recommendations by Honda. It is not a battery issue. After a few minutes, the car is able to start again. It is very scary when it happens. My daughter took the car to a Honda dealership and at first they did not find anything wrong so they "released" it back to her. Unfortunately, it stalled out again while she drove it so she brought it back to the dealership. They have since been able to replicate the "stall out"themselves but have not been able to find the cause. They have been in contact with Honda engineers to investigate, but it is unclear if they have ruled out a defective fuel level sensor, ignition problem, or electrical problem or other issue. They have had the car for three weeks.

The driver side sun visor has the same problem as my 2007 Civic where it separates at the seem and the visor will not stay in place. It has dropped twice and caused an obstruction where I had to hold the visor up and out of the way and drive through an busy intersection with one hand. This is a safety hazard and recalled for my 2007 Civic model but not extended to the 2011 Civic model, but it is the exact same problem. Is this defective part still being put into current models or has this been redesigned" if not, why wasn't this issued extended to the 2011 model year"

Sun visor on driver side and passenger side does not stay up. This is safety hazard as it blocks the view of passenger who is also watching the road when on highway driving. Requesting Honda to issue a recall for fixing this safety hazard.
